Gallery Restaurant



One of the finest restaurants in Suffolk, the grand Gallery Restaurant in the heart of The Swan offers exquisite British dining all set within superb medieval surroundings. The Gallery’s striking high timbered ceiling and handsome minstrels gallery together with exposed brickwork and impressive fireplace sets the scene for a unique dining experience. Head Chef Justin Kett pairs his expert training with a love for nature, creativity and exceptional British ingredients to craft an elegant and imaginative menu that changes seasonally. Dishes are beautifully presented and full of flavours from Suffolk and beyond and a sommelier is always on hand to assist with wine pairings from our extensive list.

In the early afternoons, the Gallery Restaurant offers a quintessential British Afternoon Tea, alongside a range of classic British dishes during the week. On Sundays, in time-honoured tradition, you can enjoy our Sunday Lunch serenaded by the soft musical accompaniment from our live pianist.
